  • On Wednesday morning September 26th Damian will make a guest appearance on NBC’s Today Show between 9 – 10 am ET to talk about his role as Charlie Crews in Life.
  • NBC will host a live blog chat at 11 pm (ET) on September 26th with Life cast and/or crew.
  • There’s a fantastic new review for Life in the Los Angeles Times! Author Mary McNamara says “Damian Lewis sets a whole new standard for the broken hero genre” and “Playing it long and lugubrious but with a tantalizing twinkle, Lewis…may well wrest the mantle of sexiest troubled American played by a Brit away from Hugh Laurie.”
  • Rick Kushman of the Houston Chronicle says that Life is “…done with an energetic sense of originality. Lewis is compelling in his mix of earnestness and quirkiness, the writing is muscular and swift, and it adds up to a new twist on the old cop show.”

  • On Friday, October 12th at 7:30 pm MT Mark Spragg (the author of An Unfinished Life which featured Damian Lewis in the film version) will read from his works at the Teton County Public Library in Jackson, Wyoming.

  • Still more “alternative media” options for viewing Life starring Damian Lewis!
    Episodes of Life will be available on Verizon’s wireless mobile television VCast service. Also NBC will offer free downloads (with commercials) of each episode for one week after the original broadcast on their new NBC Direct service; click here for more information.
  • The USA Network has started running promotional ads for Life. Episodes will repeat on USA and Bravo after the original broadcast on NBC; check the Schedule for the full list of upcoming Damian Lewis performances and events.
  • The wedding of actors Ioan Gruffudd and Alice Evans took place in Los Cabos, Mexico on September 14th. Ioan is Damian’s long-time friend and co-star and Los Cabos is an easy trip from LA; so do you see Damian anywhere in this photo? Is he the tall man on the left in the dark suit or perhaps the tall man on the right in the light suit? Or do feel that he’s not in this picture at all? Oh well, it’s fun to speculate and our congratulations to the happy Bride and Groom! (And also a big thank you to D for giving us this chance to “hunt for that ginger fellow”!)
